Scholarships: The Crossville Rotary is the largest provider of college and technical school scholarships of any organization in our county. The scholarship committee  has awarded over $100,000 in the past 15 years to more than 120 students.

Christmas baskets: Each winter, Rotary Identifies those less fortunate families who may need a hand at Christmas time. Rotary's baskets have all the ingredients for a home-cooked  meal and other staples.

The Blue Jean Project: Rotary works with the school system to identify deserving students who need assistance with basic clothing needs and provides blue jeans to those students.

Literacy and character project: Rotary provides every third-grade student and encyclopedia dictionary. Learning to read well at an early age is the key to successful education of our students in all career paths. Rotary also began a Character initiative with all our fourth-grade students. Rotary's 4-Way Test pillars truthfulness, fairness, goodness and helping others are shared with the students to encourage the importance of ethical behavior.
